Thai and struts

Hi,

We have application based on Struts1.1 on Websphere 5.0.2.6. When Thai characters are inputed, they are converted to their respective unicode representation (&#numbers and stored in the DB. I don't know how this conversion happens, it happens only when the <CODE><META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=TIS-620"> </CODE> is used. When the data is retrieved and shown in the UI, it is shown in the Unicode format and not in the Thai character format.

After investigating I found at that the struts TextTag is trying to filter/convert this (since it contains &#). Since it is not able to find the conversion for this, it is displayed as it is. In the bean:write tag we have an attribute called filter which when set to false, turns off this process. Unfortunately we do not have such attribute in the html:text tag. I am using the ELTextTag.

It would be highly helpful if I get the source code for the strutsel package that came along with the struts1.1 package. If anybody has anyother that would be useful for me, it will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Uday
